Vacancy: Editor 2020-2021

The editorial board of the Erasmus Student Journal of Philosophy (ESJP) is looking for new editors, starting after the summer for the fall and spring issue of next academic year (edition 19 and 20).

The ESJP is a student-run organization whose primary purpose is to publish a journal of philosophical scholarship, conducted by our bachelors- and masters students. The journal comes out twice a year, in January and June. Aside from serving as an important academic platform for students to present their work a wider intellectual audience, the journal has two other goals. First, to provide members of the editorial board the opportunity to develop their own editing and writing skills. Second, to enable students to realize their first official academic publication during their time as a student at ESPhil or the Humanities Department of the EUC. Published papers are available on the ESPhil website, Google Scholar and RePub. More information can be found here:

As editor you will become a member of the editorial board with approximately 15 editors from the BA Philosophy, Bachelor in Philosophy of a Specific Degree, BA Liberal Arts and Sciences (Humanities EUC), MA Philosophy, and the MA Research Master Philosophy & Economics. The editorial board consists of a mix of Dutch and international students, which means that candidates should have a good command of English. Although the majority of the articles we publish are in English, some articles are in Dutch. Proficiency in Dutch hence is an advantage, but not required.

Main responsibilities:

● Attending meetings of the editorial board (selection and evaluation meeting);

● Actively participate in the editing process.

What we are looking for:

● Passion for academic philosophy;

● Skill and competence in philosophical writing or ambition to improve these skills;

● Interest in improving your skills as an editor.

What we offer:

●  Extensive training for new editors in editing and philosophical writing;

●  An enthusiastic community of passionate philosophy students with different backgrounds and interests;

●   The opportunity to read, edit and learn from the best philosophical papers written by peer-students at the Erasmus University Rotterdam.

If you are interested in becoming an editor, please send a short letter of motivation and your CV to before the 11th of September (if you already know that you want to become an editor, please send us a message earlier).
